So last night I was absent from our game and my DM took over my character with neither my knowledge nor consent. Not only that, he also changed my characters relationship with an NPC.
I’m really not sure how to handle this but as far as I’m concerned it’s a blatant abuse of power. Rather than outright quitting I’d like to handle this like an adult and talk it over but I need help making a sound argument.
Sadly I cannot say exactly what happened because it would be NSFW but just knowing that should give you an idea of what he did while I was gone. I’ll let him make choices on what skills and abilities I can have and what I can and can’t use them for maintain the power balance but I’m not about to let him tell me how to RP my character especially when it doesn’t involve how I interact with other players.
He’s also never taken other players characters over when their absent and said himself it’s okay to be absent or leave without an explanation.
I think what brought this on is that I refused to use a character from another one of our games just because they have overlapping storylines. He was obviously upset about that so I think it’s possible that was the reason that he suddenly had a change of heart.
Or in hindsight it just could be that his social skills are even worse than I thought and he honestly thought it was a good idea. I mean mine are pretty bad but I can compensate with cold reading as long as I can see the person or hear their voice.
I would like my DM to retcon the relationship change and to let them know that they shouldn't be taking over RP for my character again. How can I go about doing this?
